Strike Back is a 2D 1v1 fighting game focusing on a bite-sized fighting game experience. Pick from two characters based on real fighting styles and Strike Back!


Strike Back was developed as part of DigiPen's year-long GAM 200/250 course. The game is a spiritual successor to 1st Strike and is one of the first 1v1 fighting games to be made available on DigiPen's Game Gallery website. I served as the lead system/combat designer on the project.
